Iowa Mother Thankful For Cannabis Oil Vote

Iowa Mother Thankful For Cannabis Oil Vote
MASON CITY, IA -

A Mason City mother whose son has severe epilepsy is thanking Iowa lawmakers who voted to approve the use of cannabis oil to treat the condition.

Cassie Helland says that she hopes Gov. Terry Branstad will sign the bill into law. The Iowa Legislature passed a bill Thursday legalizing the use of a form of marijuana oil to treat chronic epilepsy.

Helland's son, 9-year-old Caleb, has had epileptic seizures since he was 3 months old. Helland says he has been having more intense seizures, including grand mal seizures, in recent weeks. Helland hopes Caleb can be prescribed cannabis oil and taken off the other medications, which have side effects such as liver and kidney damage.
